About the Author:

S.N. Paleja has appeared as an actor in film, television, and theater. This is his first book for children; he also recently completed an adult novel.

Kevin Loring is a writer and actor whose play Where the Blood Mixes won the prestigious Canadian Governor General's Literary Award for Drama in 2009. Kevin is a member of the Nlaka'Pamux First Nation in British Columbia, and currently lives in Vancouver.

Review:

The colourful pictures help to draw children's interest and they also help reluctant readers access the content. (Alicia Odeen Deakin Review of Children's Literature)

Entertaining and informative... The infographics are fun and varied...the colour scheme and layout are very nice. (Laura Shtern, Assistant Head Librarian, Moose Jaw Canadian Children's Book Centre)

It's the best we've seen in a very long time and for that reason alone I think it's notable. Worth looking at. Worth considering. (Elizabeth Bird School Library Journal (Fuse 8) 2013-05-28)

The book succeeds as a general overview, especially in its emphasis on the diversity of geography, language, and culture of different Native American groups across the U.S. and Canada. Furthermore, Paleja solidly grounds Native Americans in the present day, discussing language revival, small-business ownership, teens' social media use, and other contributions and challenges in contemporary communities. (Sarah Stone, San Francisco Public Library School Library Journal 2013-11-01)

An amazing amount of information is presented on these 48 pages. (The book) presents an overview of the indigenous people of North America that could be used to teach a unit on this subject or to provide a stepping stone to more in-depth research projects. This book would also be useful to teach how information is delivered in non-fiction titles. (Canadian Teacher 2013-06-01)

S.N. Paleja's small book is a well-organized visual feast... The fact that so much useful information is effectively conveyed in a mere 48 pages is testament to the first-rate maps, bar graphs, pie charts and timelines, all carefully and colourfully laid out to make the publication as accessible as possible to a grades 4-7 target audience... Don't be surprised if your young readers are spurred on to further research thanks to this comprehensive little book. (Green Teacher 2014-05-01)

Provides a wonderful introduction to American lndians. This engaging book serves as a great starting point for social studies investigations. (Annette Lamb and Larry Johnson Teacher Librarian 2014-06-01)
